1910 - Jingdezhen

Jingdezhen, Kangxi Province- “Porcelain Capitol”

As a child, Liu watched and learned the design and construction of Chinese porcelain painting with skilled craftsmen – this art is traditionally passed down only from father to son. But he was so talented and interested in the subject, the local artists took him under their wing. Later, he would go on to write about the entire process.
